How To Install Bike Cradle
The clamp body is pre-assembled on the bike
cradle. What you will do is installing it to the
pillar without removing the clamp body.
Make sure you never remove the center
Arm Connecting Bolt. If you do, the part
becomes unusable. Just loosen it, not
removing even when necessary.
Do not install the Pivot
Pin from the top.
You will not be able to
use the hex wrench.
Do not tighten the Pivot Pin
Fixing Bolt firmly yet.
If you tighten to much, the
next step will become difficult.
Remove the Clamping Bolt from the side, the
Pivot Pin Fixing Bolt from the top and the Pivot
Pin from the bottom in order to enable the
opening of the clamp arms. (see Fig. A)

Put the Pivot Pin through all 3 holes on the clamp
band from bottom side, and screw the Pivot-Pin
Fixing Bolt with a flat washer temporally.

The clamp is universal with no specific
direction. But the pivot pin MUST come
from the bottom. If you don't, you will
be unable to tighten the bolt with your
hex wrench.
Turn the Pivot Pin to align the
thread hole to the side hole on
the Clamp Band.
Screw the Clamping Bolt into
the Pivot Pin. (see Fig. D)
Tighten the Clamping Bolt

When installing the clamp band to the
smaller diameter (40mm) pillar, you
must put the plastic Shim between the
clamp band and the pillar as a spacer.
Make sure the dual ribs are located on
the single arm side. (see Fig. B)

Adjusting Cradle Width & Angle
The Bike Cradle Arm is size adjustable between 325mm
and 415mm (the distance of the Hook Fixing Bolts) and
also angle adjustable +/- 10 degrees in order to fit to
various types of bike frame as perfectly as possible.

in the center of the Cradle Cap, and
loosen the inside Arm Connecting Bolt

After adjustment, tighten the bolt firmly.
How To Mount Bike
To mount a bike on the cradle, place the top-tube on the
Usually, you hold the top-tube by both hooks, but if the
bike frame design is specially sloping, you should set
either hook under the seat-tube to keep the bike from
sliding off.
Setting the front end to higher than the
rear of the bike may cause the wheel
to turn and possibly chip or damage
the frame from components touching.
Minoura recommends keeping the front
end lower if possible or using a strap to
secure the wheel to the frame or stand
to avoid such accidents.
The hook material may stain on your
bike frame, especially in light color
such as white, depending on the top
finish condition.
We recommend placing a piece of bartape between the hook and the frame
or wrapping the hook with bandage
in order to avoid direct touching each
